4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sacramento State campus security is really effective and demonstrated. For instance, there are multiple police carts roaming around campus making sure every student is safe. Also, Sacramento State provides campus security to escort a student from one place to another, when needed. As far as my safety. I do feel safe on campus and am comfortable walking alone, besides during the night. During my night classes, I will call campus security to get escorted to my vehicle safely.

Overall Experience: The courses offered at Sacramento State are really diverse and an excellent way to have students pick up different skills and tools they will then need in the long run. My past professor were really helpful and conisderate of each student. The class style varied for every professor, some were direct and knew what was expected, while other were not. Although some classes were a large group, around 200 student, it did not make learning any harder. Overall, professors are good and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are variety of clubs that help with job and internship interviews. They prepare an individual and allow them to know what is expected during an interview. The quality of the career center and services on campus are extraordinary. They are there to help a student make a plan to follow and are convinent for each individual. Also, they have a relatively easy way to make appointments with them if needed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This school semester I decided not to live on campus. However, I personally have been inside the dormority and have seen the social atmosphere. The dorms are convinent for college students and have enough space for each individual. The social atompshere is mellow during the weekday and enjoyable during weekends. As far as the housing process, there have been some issues regarding late payment.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at CSUS has no major impact on the atmosphere or social life on campus. Non-Greeks, like myself, do not get tormented or attacked by not being involved in sororities or fraternities. Currently, I am not aware of the housing availability for Greeks.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The atheletics at CSUS is a great way to bring the whole campus together during games. For instance, the team performance was outstanding and their hard work really showed through every single play.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My favorite Sacramento State experience was the first day of classes during Fall 2015. It was an easy way to grasp the real college life as an incoming freshman. Easy campus to commute to and get from one area to anothe . Sacramento state is extremely unique because it has around 1,000 trees or so and each tree is numbered. I would chose my school all over again since the process of selecting my ideal school was easy, especially since CSUS is local and is a fast commute.

Health & Safety: It is very nice that we get emails each time someone is known to have been attacked and there is someone to be wary of. It is wonderful that campus police can get anywhere in two minutes. There are buttons around campus to press in emergency situations, but sometimes when walking alone in certain areas I fear that if I were attacked, I would not be able to get help for myself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am only a freshman, but so far I have really loved it at Sac State. The classes have been nicely challenging yet manageable to get good grades in, and the instructors have been very helpful whenever I need it. There are many different courses to choose from that will make general education much more interesting. Class sizes range from quite small to very very large. Typically you can choose between class sizes as long as they are open.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that a degree from Sac State it valuable as long as you are involved with more than just academics. There are so many opportunities for these things here, it seems, that if you put yourself into it there should be no issues.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice to live so close to campus and not have to worry about buying food all the time, but it's very expensive for the average student. It's not super easy to make friends if you aren't super outgoing, but its alright. It feels kinda cramped. Overall it's a great option for those who can't get to campus easily or for freshmen who aren't very independent yet. I plan on moving into apartments after freshman year.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about greek life, and don't really have any interest in it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not all that involved in sports and don't care a whole lot about them here, so I don't have much information to offer.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sac State is a wonderful campus filled with very nice people. I do not regret choosing this school, and I believe that its education is very worthwhile. The instructors that I have encountered all have a deep care for their students and their job.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have not personally attended an athletic event but i hear basketball is our only good sport.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is very beautiful so off the bat that is amazing. The classes offered are apart of a wide variety. Some negatives are, how quickly classes can be filled up and the lack of parking spaces.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We always have sexual assaults on campus.

Overall Experience: Use RateMyProfessor. It is vital.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Use your resources and the student center!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of greek life, but it is really easy to get into. Since it is a commuter school, most students stay home and don't get involved.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really go to games like everyone else, because it is a commuter school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a commuter school and the campus is not very modern, besides the well, so there is not much culture to look forward to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes are manageable, and my professors have helped me immensely! I've had major 1 on 1 time with my professors since my class sizes have been so small!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally, I'm a government major who is a freshman, and I already have a job working in the Capitol! It's great!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been a great experience. I've met some great people and being on campus is great! Parking is somewhat of an issue and I've occasionally had to park across campus due to the lack of spaces.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
